Walking City: An Evolving Video Sculpture Morphs in Response to Architecture

February 5, 2014

Christopher Jobson

Anyone who follows Colossal knows that digital animation and motion graphics are a rarity here, but this clip is a solid exception. Created by Universal Everything, Walking City is a slowly evolving video sculpture that gradually changes form through dozens of permutations while the core motion, the act of walking, remains the same. Via Universal Everything:

Referencing the utopian visions of 1960’s architecture practice Archigram, Walking City is a slowly evolving video sculpture. The language of materials and patterns seen in radical architecture transform as the nomadic city walks endlessly, adapting to the environments she encounters.

At almost 8 minutes long it’s a captivating view for such a simple premise, it’s fun to imagine the buildings and architectural designs that inspire each step. (via Colossal Submissions)
